WILD Wednesdays are returning to the Brontë Parsonage Museum for the summer holidays.

The popular weekly family workshops, which are held every school holiday, will run from August 9 to 30.

The sessions, which all run from 11am to 4pm, begin on August 2 with Paper Boats.

When the Brontës were children, they loved stories of adventures in boats taking their characters to far off mysterious lands.

Families can sail away with Branwell and his sisters by making beautiful paperboats, creating their own design and decorating with different ways of printing.

Wax Painting will be on August 9, exploring the Brontës’ keen interest in art and love of going outdoors in all weathers.

A museum spokesman said: “Follow Branwell in creating a dramatic stormy landscape by painting with encaustic wax and include a ruined tower in your scene, just as he did!”

Pocket Brontës, on August 16, will allow visitors to create tiny puppets recreating the Brontës and their most famous or infamous characters.

The spokesman added: “Discover more about the worlds they created as children as we make unique and eccentric characters of our own. You might even make Branwell as Byron or Mr Brontë as the Duke of Wellington.”

Create a Scene! is the title of the August 23 session, focusing on the Brontës’ love of telling stories and getting imaginary worlds.

Children can make their own pop-up scene at the museum incorporating some of Branwell’s amazing architectural drawings.

Felt Jewellery, on August 30, is inspired by the Brontës’ collection of surprisingly glamorous jewellery, and will allow visitors to make a beautiful brooch to take home with them.

There will be family activities on other days through the holidays, from July 26 to September 3.
